The Finals of the Danish National Public Speaking Competition
The Finals of the Public Speaking Competition, one of the highlights of the ESU calendar, was held on 13 March at Ordrup Gymnasium. 50 guests including the contestants, their teachers, parents and ESU members attended the event. We were delighted that ESU Patroness H.E. Alexandra Christina, Countess of Frederiksborg was present this year in the capacity as adjudicator.
At our ESU event on 30 April with Bob Cobley, MBE, Honorary Representative for Denmark, for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission CWGC, gave a fascinating talk on maintaining the Commonwealth war graves in Denmark.
Former ESU Chair, Claire Clausen, is very much looking forward to seeing our members again, and talking about her original homeland, New Zealand and how it compares with her new homeland, Denmark. Further details on email@example.com
